People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*


Tomorrow morning me, the Boy, both our Mums, and Boris The Dog are leaving for the bonny Isle of Skye. I'm praying for sunshine, or at the very least an absence of driving rain and howling wind, which is what I remember from my last trip to the island about 13 years ago. However, this being Scotland, I'm packing my waterproofs. And remembering that at least it looks atmospheric when the mist comes down:

Coco and Roo are staying here to hold the fort, and our friendly catsitter is coming every day to make sure they're not having any wild parties in my absence (also to water my carrots, which are going great guns by the way).

I'll be back next Saturday, hopefully tanned and relaxed, but more than likely knackered and midge-bitten.

Keep an eye on the place, won't you.

WOW. If you see anything as beautiful as that, a few midge bites are worth it!

Have a fabulous time.

I think Skye's about the only Scottish island I've never been to! Have a good one, missus.

They have lots of otters in Skye. Lovely otters! And an otter sanctuary.

Say hello to the otters for me, and have a lovely and obviously very beautiful time. x

Have a great time, Teens. I'm still (semi-)happily remembering my time on Skye in March. :)
